But why then, pray Tell, do you feel less inclined to get out of the way?

Just curious...

Dear DeadPolitics : I assure you a lot of the old will choose to get out of the way as soon as painless instant death will be available on sale in any local stores !

I fear my comments have portrayed me as some kind of agist. (like sexist or racist but for age)

I don't want really want the older population to move on faster... I am just often frustrated by the lack of change in the operations of companies and governments. I think a great deal of this is the inability of some people to let go of their conceptions of the what the world is/should be and to realize that things are changing faster than ever.

Of course this is the naturally conservative nature of the older generation rearing its ugly head. But there's gotta be some give and take - if you never pay attention or respect the traditions then you are bound for failure as well.

Something I think is really lacking (at least in the USA and Canada, from my experience) is inter-generational knowledge transfer. As salaries have increased and societal norms changed, grandparents now rarely live with their grandkids. I was essentially raised by my grandparents, while I know some people that see theirs maybe once a month?

What a weird time we are going through right now ... there is a great movement in the youth to recover the skills of our great grandparents - in taking the responsibility of feeding ourselves once again (and not just going to the supermarket).

Hey you , DeadPolitics ! You are a fine youth , i always knew that . Now there is something wrong in this world we are in ,here and it doesn't have to be the way it goes ,never for the young nor the elderly ,and frankly not being a preaching hypocrit i don't care if you are or not racist ,agist, or whatever . Nobody can care about evrybody else ,that resumes what getting older taught me .

Okay, rob, you win this time. You and your aging slaves can go home and pray to whoever you want.

Believing in nothing I have nothing to pray to. But I thank you for your sentiments. Until the next time, noble youth...

Ha! My sons and I watched that movie a few times in their youth...always a good time followed by production of cardboard swords and shields for the backyard reenactments...

"Do you like snails?"

Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons (nice), Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov, John Gavin, Nina Foch, John Ireland, Herbert Lom (!?)...

The image of you and your sons having at it with cardboard weaponry has given me one of those warm fuzzy feelings that will help to offset my choleric outbursts elsewhere. Thanks, WT, you're one of the best.
